Sinopse Original Original Sinopsis

Sinopse Portuguesa Portuguese Sinopsis

“No decorrer dos meus deveres de limpeza, examinei os pertences de cada hóspede do hotel e observei através dos detalhes, vidas que permanecerão desconhecidas.” diz a Camareira temporária num grande hotel à beira mar, que incapaz de se relacionar, vive através de uma rígida metodologia de análise sobre o exterior e um quotidiano ritualizado. Até que o incontrolável vem perturbar esta dinâmica. Hotel Royal é um fragmento e incompleto mosaico das sociedades contemporâneas. Poderia ser apelidado de um filme sobre os horrores da alma, sobre voyeurs ou simplesmente sobre inadaptados.

Sinopse Internacional Sinopsis

In the course of my cleaning duties, I examined the belongings of each guest of the hotel and observed through the details, lives that will remain unknown’, says the temporary Chambermaid in a large seaside hotel, which, unable to communicate, lives through a rigid methodology of analysis of the exterior and a ritualised quotidian. Until the uncontrollable comes to disrupts this dynamic. Hotel Royal is fragmented and incomplete mosaic of contemporary societies. It could be dubbed a film about the horrors of the soul, about voyeurs or simply about misfits.

Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
There’s no need to reinvent the world, paying close attention is enough. ‘In the course of my cleaning duties, I examined the belongings of each guest at the hotel and observed through the details, lives that will remain unknown.’ says the temporary Chambermaid in a large seaside hotel, which, unable to communicate, lives through a rigid methodology of analysis of the exterior and a ritualised quotidian. Hotel Royal exposes itself as a set of simple rules of formal and structural restrictions to present us with a fragmented and incomplete mosaic of contemporary societies. As a peepshow Hotel Royal explores the horrors of the soul or simply the distant observation of the misfits. The rooms are all the same… people are all the same. We all have identical biological bodies, but we pair people, groups, cultures, policies and identities that are nevertheless different. Where is the resemblance and where is the dissemblance? Where is fiction and where is reality. And what to do with the problems shared by both in representation? Hotel works on notions of intimacy, vulnerability and intrusion when establishing and crossing the limits of the public and private sphere. Whether or not intentionally, the filmic device generates feelings of seclusion/participation in a viewer who feels a desired guest but also an intruder. Sentimental, intense and occasionally traumatic spaces are created. All banal or extraordinary objects will thus be imbued with allegorical qualities. Hotel Royal produces a sort of fiction of the intimacy. The viewer becomes accomplice of the voyeurism – compelled, too, from the need to move without being observed, through the private sphere of the other, compelled to cultivate his/her own interior narratives. – A social experience of subjective production. Nothing is poorer than the truth expressed as a thought.
